Kyoto city is now in a hurry to establish a regulation prohibiting of feeding cats.
This includes the feeding of stray cats.
We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, sent a letter requesting exclusion of the feeding of stray cats.
This is from Kyoto news paper.
Leaving of feces and urine by pets, and irresponsible feeding, will be prohibited in a regulation in Kyoto city.
September 29, 2014
The mayor of Kyoto city, Daisaku KADOKAWA, clarified his intention to establish the regulations prohibiting feces and urine of house dogs and cats, and irresponsible feeding, before the end of the year.
Penalty for the violation is under consideration.
Kyoto city said that the damage from feces and urine on the road and riverbed seems endless.
A complaint to Kyoto city in 2013 alleged 398 cases by dogs, and 271 case by cats.
To address this problem, Kyoto city started a 16-member project team in December.
However, beside the improvement of ethics of the owners, it is necessary to establish policies for regulating obligations and prohibitions. (Mayor Kadokawa)
Concerning the prohibition of acts of leaving feces and urine by dogs and cats, and also feeding, it is assumed that these things are perpetuating a nuisance for the neighbors.
Also Kyoto city said that we should consider having a penalty included with the regulation to ensure effectiveness.
Kyoto city said that of the 4 cities in Kinki area, Kobe city is the only one with this penalty.
We Inuneko Kyusainowa sent a letter of petition to the mayor of Kyoto city, to demand the exclusion of the feeding of stray / unknown cats from the regulation and charter.
If it is included in the regulation and charter, it would cause prejudice, and have a bad effect on the volunteers who administer to stray cats.
Kyoto city aims to establish the regulations by the end of the year.
So we have no time to wait.
Please everyone, ask the mayor of Kyoto to exclude the feeding of stray cats from the regulation and the charter.
I believe he might listen and understand.
Please send your opinion to the mayor of Kyoto from here.
